"Educators realize that students need more than instruction in reading, spelling, and arithmetic. They recognize the need for students at all grade levels to be actively engaged in learning how to think. Mere acquisition of knowledge is not enough if our schools are to successfully prepare students for the future.

Primarily Thinking is a foundation for building critical thinking skills that will serve students in all areas of the curriculum and in real-life situations. It offers practice in six essential thinking skills that will get students' brain cells jumping comparing and contrasting, classification, fact and opinion, cause and effect, patterns, and sequencing. Each skill is presented in a series of interesting reproducible worksheets. At the end of each section, there are additional activities for the teacher to use to provide further practice in applying thinking skills in all areas of the curriculum."

About the Author

Judy Leimbach received her master's degree in Instructional Strategies in Gifted Education from National-Louis University. She has 14 years of experience teaching in regular classrooms, kindergarten through fifth grade, and 14 years experience teaching gifted students in grades 1-5. In addition, she has spent 5 years supervising groups of student teachers at Wheaton College.

When she first started teaching in a gifted program, there were few materials available for gifted students in primary grades, so Leimbach began writing her own and had several books published. Having previously taught in the regular classroom, she also was very aware of the need for high quality, easy-to-use materials for regular classroom teachers to use for their gifted students in both primary and intermediate grades. She began working with other teachers, including her daughter, a middle school math teacher, to develop materials to meet that need.
